About: Durham County Library will host the first of a new monthly series, Dungeons & Dragons in the Library, at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St. Dungeon Master John Davis will present an introduction and demo of the game targeted at new and returning players. Patrons are then invited to return to participate each month.

First published in 1974, Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy role-playing game where players take on the role of heroic characters like Bilbo Baggins (The Hobbit), Arya Stark (Game of Thrones), or Drizzt Do’Urden (Dark Elf trilogy), and work together to battle enemies, find treasure, and solve puzzles. It promotes collaboration, creative problem solving, and literacy.

Durham native John Davis has been running D&D games for over a decade, and has a special fondness for introducing new players to the game. He’s run intro-games for everyone from small children, to groups of improvisational comics, to bachelor parties. When he’s not rolling dice, he’s answering reference questions at the Main Library.
